2013 Resolution: Accomplished

One of my resolutions for 2013 was to begin reading more regularly. I set an arbitrary goal of 24 books, which seemed ambitious as I did not know what my 2013 time constraints would be. I’m glad to report that I smashed my goal, which I am embedding below through GoodReads. 

For those interested, I haven’t settled on my 2014 resolutions yet.

There is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
